If you were left on a deserted island and could only eat one food and drink one liquid for the rest of your life, what would it be?

  • Bread and water?
  • Kale salad and a green monster?
  • Christmas cookies and hot chocolate?

If you picked the third choice, I’d say you were one of Santa’s Helpers. But you’d also be right in line to order a Christmas cookie tray from the HS Mission Trip team. We’re selling Christmas cookies this weekend! Convince Beg  Lovingly request that your parents order a tray! ($15/small tray & $25/large tray)
